    SubjectRe: [PATCH] oom_pardon, aka don't kill my xlock
    Hi all,

    Just out of interest then...suppose we've got a loopback swap device
    and that we can extend this by creating a new file or extending
    somehow the existing one.

    What would be wrong with having the page reclaim algorithms use one of
    the low memory watermarks as a trigger to call in to userspace to
    extend the swap available if possible? This is probably what Microsoft
    et al do with their "Windows is extending your virtual memory, yada
    yada blah blah". Comments? Already done?
